Wow. We did it.

The garage is on it's foundation. We got up bright and shiny early I met the NIPSCO guy who dropped the power line for us. We jacked her up and pushed it up on the slab, piece of cake. Lining up the bolts and setting it down, well that took about 4 hours. It was lots of work but I had lots of help, Thanks again guys! There is still a ton of work to do, after all the garage is 60 years old. The garage has a little lean that I have to fix, it's dirty, there's a bunch of bracing I have to remove, I have to put the doors back on and make them open and shut, and I still have to pour a concrete apron and back fill some more. Oh yeah, it could use a new roof too.
I have a garage! Yay.
On the other side of the fence, Bill got the walls up and it looks superb. He's gonna have one nice car hole. Sounds dirty.

WOW! Well done, my young Padawon. Now the real work begins. Deciding what type and how much shit you fit in there before you give up and the car goes back in the driveway again. Man, it's great to be an American!
